Kevin Smith and Johnny Depp are bringing their daughters to work… or is it that they’re providing support for their offspring in their burgeoning film careers? According to The Hollywood Reporter, Smith’s new movie Yoga Hosers will star his and Depp’s daughters as yoga-obsessed Canadian convenience store clerks, who have to harness their flexibility and inner light to battle ancient evils.
This movie sounds quirky as all get-out, right? Get a load of the synopsis:
Hosers, written by Smith, centers on 15-year-old yoga nuts Colleen Collette (Lily-Rose Depp) and Colleen McKenzie (Harley Quinn Smith), who have an after-school job at a Manitoba convenience store called Eh-2-Zed. When an ancient evil rises from beneath Canada’s crust and threatens their big invitation to a Grade 12 party, the Colleens join forces with a legendary man-hunter from Montreal named Guy Lapointe (Johnny Depp) to fight for their lives with, according to the producers, “all seven Chakras, one Warrior Pose at a time.”
The Colleens actually appeared briefly in Smith’s most recent film Tusk, about a man who is captured and tortured into transforming into a walrus. The entire cast is returning for Yoga Hosers, the second film in Smith’s True North trilogy, which draws from Canadian folklore and legends.
It’s also Smith’s first foray into a truly comic book-inspired film—which is surprising, considering he named his daughter after the Joker’s famous assistant. “People always ask me ‘Are you ever going to make a comic book movie?’” Smith told THR. “This is it—but instead of yet another dude saving the day, our antiheroes are the most feared and formidable creatures man has ever encountered: two 15-year-old girls.”
